'By recovering the lost masterpieces of Italian women writers, Writing to Delight adds significantly to the burgeoning field of canon revision in Italian studies. These carefully selected short stories, which have not previously been available in English, attest to the rich literary and cultural legacy of Italian women writers, and illustrate convincingly and often poignantly the restrictive ideal of female domesticity so prevalent in 19th century Italy. This is an extremely significant work.'-Laura Salsini
